    Random question, but did Philiadelphia see a lot of Goose Island's Big John this last go around? Bottles or kegs? Just wondering how far this got distributed. Thanks!!!

    We got it here in South Jersey, 10 mins from Philly so I'd imagine they got it too

    pretty easy to find in bottles and grab as much as you wanted, just sitting around on the shelves for a few weeks, probably still some out there.

    We definitely had it...there was/is a bunch in NJ as well as digdug said (just saw a bunch of that and Nightstalker in Ocean county last weekend). Last place I saw Big John in Philly was at Beer Heaven last week or so.

    Pretty sure The Bottle Shop still has a few. They are having a hard time selling them at a $16 price tag...

    Had it several times on tap as well last month. It wasn't hard to find. POPE, Perch Pub, etc.

    should have no worries in the east coast beer capital.

    I would estimate that Philly saw about a dozen kegs. I haven't seen one in at least several weeks though. It's the type of beer that a few bars will probably sit on for an event so I would not be surprised to see a few more.
